Big Idaho® Potato Truck Set Sail in New York Harbor

12,000 Pounds of Idaho® Potatoes Donated To Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen

Idaho Potato Truck

The world’s largest potato on wheels traded its tires for buoys in celebration of the 2016 Idaho® Potato Harvest. On Wednesday, August 24th, the giant spud embarked on her maiden voyage through New York Harbor and donated 12,000 pounds of Idaho potatoes to Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen.

New York is the largest consumer of Idaho® potatoes, and it was their way of saying thank you to the Big Apple.

We served the delicious Idaho® potatoes on Thursday, August 25th to our guests and volunteers and are so grateful for the generous gift!
